We have loved Bella Mia restaraunt for a long time, and I will say that the food and the room we hosted our main reception in were excellent, but the service of the banquet manager really left something to be desired. It got better after the I approached the manager, who was VERY quick to step in and fix things. All in all, please dont let one bad egg spoil a wonderful location. The food is well above par, the room was lovely, and the manager at Bella Mia has a level of service you just dont find easily anymore. He makes every person feel like they are close personal friends getting a special level of service.

We had our luncheon reception at Bella Mia, which is a normal downtown SJ restaurant on the first floor (with a cute courtyard and great lobster ravioli), but also has a sizeable ballroom upstairs, as well as a few other rooms suitable for smaller events. They were supposed to only be open for dinner the day of our wedding (new year's eve), but they agreed to bring some employees in midday just for our event -- this was fantastic, because we got the entire upstairs to ourselves, which meant the main event could take place in the ballroom, the guestbook and favors could go out in the hallway, and another room could be used for coats and little children who needed space. Tony Deale was very cooperative and helpful, although in the weeks preceding it, he was sometimes hard to get a hold of via the restaurant. This is not an ultra-ritzy location -- the wallpaper wasn't flawless, and there were a few tarps in the courtyard visible from the ballroom balcony -- but the service was attentive and prompt, and it was perfect for the level of formality and coziness we were looking for. The food was terrific too -- all well-made italian food with packages ranging from about $25/plate to $60/plate. They were very considerate when negotiating things like cake-cutting fee vs. included dessert price, and offered a range of liquor options (from full bar to wine & beer included). They allowed us to provide our own placecards and set them up for us on a table. Altogether, what it lacked in polished and/or aesthetic details it readily made up for with ease of service and personal charm.
